Sponsorship

 

As a self funded grower group, managed by community volunteers, YFIG does not openly seek or require ongoing corporate sponsorship to carry out its business.

 

Rather, we choose to align with organisations and partners that can provide benefits to YFIG members by supporting our projects and events.

 

Our current sponsors and project partners include:

​Rabobank            McIntosh & Son            CSBP

NEFF                  COGGO                        Pioneer

SACOA                DAFWA                       Royalties for Regions

Western Australia's (DPIRD) network of automatic weather stations provide timely, relevant and local weather data to assist growers to make more informed decisions. 

Soil Moisture Probe

DPIRD together with CSIRO has been working on improving the data from the soil moisture probes across the state to more accurately reflect the site soil types where they are installed.
